AllMusic Review by Johnny Loftus

Positivity! Say it out loud -- don't you feel better already? If not, Roland Hanneman hopes his delicate fan of contemporary instrumentals will blow a thumbs-up-shaped cloud your way. As Madacy's Healing Garden Music series goes, Positivity is quite strong. Some of Hanneman's pieces have a gentle classical influence ("Voyage," "Tunes of Splendor"); others rely on the tried and true new age template of soft beats and plaintive keyboard tones. Two flamenco-inspired pieces from Tierra Negra also give Positivity's midsection some much-needed zing. Hooray!
